“We, the staff of the Birthing Center, strive to consistently exceed our patients’ expectations by providing unconditional emotional, physical, and educational support in a safe environment during their most memorable of occasions: the birth of their child.” – OMH Birthing Center
Bringing a new life into the world is a momentous, miraculous event; our Birthing Center staff believes every birth deserves special attention, respect, and celebration. We have designed our care to provide physical and emotional support through labor, delivery, recovery, and mother-baby care.
Otsego Memorial Hospital has served this community for generations, and welcomes hundreds of additions to the newest generation every year. For up-to-date care that is close to home, many choose OMH Birthing Center for this special experience.
Our Birthing Center delivers inpatient services for antepartum, laboring and post-partum care for adolescents and adults, as well as their newborn infants until the time of discharge. The staff works in collaboration with the obstetricians, pediatricians, and family practice physicians with admitting privileges, as well as other physicians for consultative care to provide the optimal patient experience.
Services include maternal and fetal external and internal monitoring, pre-and post-op surgical care and follow up, and general nursing care and education as appropriate to the individual patient. Antenatal outpatient Non-Stress Tests, labor observation, infant circumcision, and breastfeeding consultations also occur within the Center.
The nursery at the Center is a Level 1 nursery with the purpose of attending to the needs of the healthy infants and identify, stabilize, and transfer ill neonates. Maternal transfer occurs based upon evaluation of risk factors and physician recommendation.
